SpikeNet captured the magic of last night's Alumni Reception. This event was the first opportunity for our Class of 2019 inductees and past inductees to meet each other and begin exchanging their stories.

The Alumni welcome reception at Springfield College is one of the most special events of this magical weekend.

And there's no better person to tell us what this place means than the author of "The untold story of William G. Morgan, inventor of volleyball" Joel Dearing.

It's #TBT so we were thinking back on one of our favorite events of the year: the Boys VolleyHall Classic. Back in May we hosted this annual tournament at Elms College. Newton North were the undefeated champions and Agawam came in as the runners-up.

Also, check out the amazing shot of Ta'Nye from Central High School, who leaped a cool 35.5 inches to be crowned our vertical jump champion!

We're already looking forward to next year!

We missed it last week, so this week we've got 2 #weeklyhalloffamer's to celebrate, and Aaron Jessee - Master MsE you are our #1! Thanks for all of your love and shout-outs! And for making our gear look great!

#Volleyball was originally created by William Morgan, to be a competitive recreational sport that was less violent and not as intense as the rapidly developing sport of #basketball. Today volleyball athletes know just how intense it can be. Staying at peek condition is not only important for your health, but keeps you at the top of your game! Thanks for sharing your performance and fitness knowledge!

Thank you Vladimir, for recognizing the hall of fame and sharing your love of both the sport 🏐 and your greatest supporters—your family!

A strong support system is essential to anyone who is dedicated to following their dreams, and we love and respect how much you appreciate yours! 👍❤️
